- Because of the heightened alert due to the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Josaphat’s Bingo is suspended until April 17, 2020
We thank you for your patronage and for helping us build a wonderful Bingo community.
We have decided to suspend our Bingo operations for the rest of the month of March. This is being done to protect the health of the players and our volunteers. Because of the long gestation period of the virus before symptoms show up (or even the lack of symptoms in those who carry the virus but are not affected) – we cannot risk exposing people to the potential hazard it represents.
As per the County Health Department’s request to limit gatherings of over 50 people – we believe our best path forward is to follow this guidance. We appreciate your understanding with our decision and hope to see you back in April when it is hopefully safer to return to normal group activities.
